filming doco in Mullum & news

Hi Folks

A student film-maker named Ty from ANU will be making a doco about MCAN for YouTube. He will be in Mullumbimby tomorrow afternoon and at Mullumbimby Market this Sat (19 April)10 - 11 am. This is your chance for worldwide exposure of your opinions on Woolworths! Call me 66843723 if you want your spot booked.

This is our second movie this week - on Monday Susie Forster of Byron Bay Multimedia made a short drama with teenagers about food miles. This will also be on YouTube in a few weeks - and our website!

Duncan Dey has collated the information from 92 forms that were filled in on the community's preferred use of the Telstra Site. The favourite option was a covered Community Market and & Farmers' Market; joint second fave went to Community Gardens and Ethical Food Co-op. He will now present the findings to Byron Shire Council.
